    COSENZA - Italian police on Friday arrested 14 people on suspicion of exploiting migrant farm labour in Calabria.

    The suspects fraudulently got public funds to employ migrants who were staying at reception centres, judicial sources said.

    An investigation established that the migrants were taken from two reception centres at Camigliatello Silano near Cosenza to work picking potatoes and strawberries on the Sila plateau, as well as being used as shepherds.

    The refugees were mainly Senegalese, Nigerian and Somali, police said.
